Robbie Lowe was incredible blunt in his assessment of Saturday’s loss to Armagh, describing it quite simply as a “massacre”.
“It was a massacre, there’s no denying it. You could say we tried our hardest, but they played like it was a championship match and we played as if it was a challenge match,” said Lowe, “We’ve conceded eight goals and now we have to take some time and reflect on what went wrong. It almost feels like a funeral.
“We’ve suffered many set backs this year. You can point to any one of them and say “that’s a major factor”, but between injuries and loss of players from different aspects, the panel has been decimated.”
Lowe also highlighted the physical strength of the Armagh side as a key factor - “Armagh destroyed us out there particularly in the tackle. Some of their players possessed strength that we just were not able to compete with.
“The ball looked as if it was just popping out of our possession in each challenge, but really that was down to the superior strength of their players. “
